Looking for a fun recipe for your 4th of July party, here is a recipe for a delicious, red, white and blue, easy to make trifle:








3 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

1/4 cup white sugar

1 quart heavy cream

1 (3.3 ounce) package instant white Chocolate pudding mix

1 (6 ounce) container lemon yogurt

2 tablespoons coconut-flavored rum, or to taste, divided (optional)

2 (16 ounce) prepared pound cakes, cubed

2 pints fresh blueberries, or as needed


1. In a bowl, sprinkle the strawberries with sugar; stir to distribute the sugar, and set aside. Chill a large metal mixing bowl and beaters from an electric mixer.

2. Pour the cream into the chilled mixing bowl, and add white chocolate pudding mix, lemon yogurt, and about 1 tablespoon of coconut rum, if desired; beat until fluffy with an electric mixer set on Medium speed.

3. Spread a layer of pound cake cubes into the bottom of a glass 10×15-inch baking dish, and sprinkle the cubes with another tablespoon of coconut rum. Cover the pound cake with a layer of strawberries; sprinkle blueberries over the strawberries. Spread a thick layer of whipped cream over the berries. Repeat the layers several times, ending with a layer of strawberries sprinkled with blueberries and reserving about 1 cup of whipped cream; top the trifle with dollops of whipped cream to serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
